Summary
"From the author of Hum if You Don't Know the Words comes a rich, unforgettable story of three unique women in post-Apartheid South Africa who are brought together in their darkest time, and discover the ways that love can transcend the strictest of boundaries. On the outskirts of Johannesburg, seventeen-year-old Zodwa Bambisa lives in desperate poverty in tiny metal shack in a squatter camp, under the shadowy threat of a civil war and a growing AIDS epidemic. Eight months pregnant with a child she does not want, Zodwa carefully guards secrets that could get her killed if discovered. Meanwhile, at a rural farm outside the city, estranged sisters Ruth and Delilah each face a personal crisis that sends them back to their childhood home to lick their wounds. They live together in an uneasy peace until the day that they find a newborn baby on their doorstep. Abandoned with only a blanket wrapped around him, the child will change everything for the sisters, upending what they believed about race, motherhood, and the power of the past. As the mystery surrounding the infant's discovery grows, Zodwa, Ruth, and Delilah become inextricably linked. What follows is a mesmerizing look at family, identity, and the lengths to which the human heart will go to protect itself and the ones it loves"--
